Here We Go!!!

First show on Tally since I started this journey from Fat Equestrian to Fit Equestrian. Half way through first test Tally broke and I seriously considered just walking out of the arena. We recovered enough to score a 64. Second test was Intro C and has Canters in it we scored a 63. Neither test was pretty. This judge was honestly a gift. Boy did I need the confidence gift she gave with the scores. My opinion should have been in the 50’s.

Watched the videos. I am a long way away. I’m feeling more confident in the saddle, but it truly is still not balanced. I need to push harder now. More core and more stamina.

  1. Monica. Don’t be so hard on yourself! You and Tally are beautiful and sincere inside and out. Our horses challenge us to be the best version of ourselves we can be. They remind us that we must breathe and be present, directing them every moment of our ride. If you are like me, sometimes, when things are going well, I go into a blissful zone and then forget to direct Felicis, and we fall apart. Tally and Felix feel the difference between Lisa or Jayden and me and you. They challenge us to be in partnership with them every minute. It’s this journey we enjoy; it’s like a spiritual experience in that we don’t have an arrival point, we grow along the journey. Thank you for sharing your first show experience since the Fit Equestrian journey. I’m right there with you. 🐎😘❤️🐴

  3. You got out there and did it! I’m so proud of you. I felt the same way on Chardy going into a test yesterday and did not want to be in that arean. Hilda said all I had to do was trot down center line and salute. From there I could ask to be excused, I didn’t. The test scores were low as expected, but we finished, as did you. BTW, your scores were FAR superior to mine.
